Muscle, Nerve, Discs or Bone, which one is it? Truth is, with back pain and Sciatica there’s usually a few combinations, which can vary from person to person. Now there’s different physical therapies to address backpain and sciatica. Here at HH we use advanced chiropractic and deep tissue & sport massage therapy. When choosing a form of physical therapy, to ensure it’ll be safe and effective, it is recommended that the underlying cause of backpain and sciatica be clearly identified. Go to next video where discuss options available.
Now that you know the recommendation for choosing a safe and effective treatment, let me tell you how we establish the underlying cause of backpain and sciatica here at Healing Hands Chiropractic. We deliver one UK’s most thorough chiropractic assessments and it consists of a 45 min initial visit where we’ll conduct 10 different test to gather enough data to help establish a root cause diagnosis. By doing the chiropractic assessment we’ll be able to answer the three most common question we get asked: Can you help me safely? How long will it take? How much will it cost? Move to the next video where we’ll explain how to get started.

We look forwards to seeing you in the clinic to help you get a root cause diagnosis for your back pain and sciatica. You’ll be in very safe hands as we have a long track record helping people with backpain and sciatica, the two most common issue our clients present with.
Sciatica, caused by irritation of the sciatic nerves due to impingement or compression, is a particularly intense pain often felt in the lower back, buttocks and leg area. It can have a significant impact on your ability to do day-to-day tasks. The pain often reduces mobility and range of motion. The reason the pain can cover such a wide area is that sciatic pain radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve which branches from the lower back through your hips, buttocks and down each leg into the foot.
The sciatic nerve is one of the thickest and largest nerves in the body. It spans from the lower back, through the buttocks and thighs down into the legs and feet. It’s key for controlling the thighs, legs and feet. Sciatica can develop as a result of improper posture, muscular-skeletal imbalances, and accidents. A bulging disc, also known as herniated or prolapsed disc, can cause sciatica if it presses on the sciatic nerve. Pressure from vertebrae or muscle may also cause compression and irritation of the sciatic nerve. Because there are anatomical differences between people and different combinations of muscular-skeletal and neurological imbalances that can lead to sciatica, it’s very important to establish a clear root cause diagnostic.
Some common symptoms of sciatica (sciatic pain), according to Web MD, are:
- Burning or tingling down the leg
- Lower back pain
- Hip pain
- Pain in the rear or leg that is worse when sitting
- Weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot
- Constant pain on one side of the rear
- A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up
To effectively help with sciatica, we always start by conducting our uniquely designed 10-step measurement-based chiropractic check-up which we refer to as the first visit. All the readings, measurements, X-rays (if clinically required) and manual assessments combine to give us a deeper insight into the particulars of your individual case. Understanding what’s going on uniquely in your body and what is contributing, directly or indirectly, to the problem helps us formulate a root cause diagnosis. From there we can create a personal measurement-based corrective healing program.
